Whitesnake – Still of the Night

|

“Still of the Night” is a single released by Whitesnake, from their hugely successful self titled 1987 album. The song was written by lead singer David Coverdale and guitarist John Sykes, and proved to be one of the band’s most popular songs. It combines the blues origins of the band with the more distorted, harder sound driving the song, making for a powerful hard rock song. The current Whitesnake lineup and John Sykes both play the song as their live encore. A music video, featuring Coverdale’s then future wife Tawny Kitaen, was shot for the song, and it was MTV’s most requested video in its first week of release.Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

1987) The music video featured David Coverdale’s future wife Tawny Kitaen, who had appeared in the band’s earlier video for “Here I Go Again”. __________________________________ After recording two solo albums, former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale formed Whitesnake around 1977. In the glut of hard rock and heavy metal bands of the late ’70s, their first albums got somewhat lost in the shuffle, although they were fairly popular in Europe and Japan. During 1982, Coverdale took some time off, so he could take care of his sick daughter. When he re-emerged with a new version of Whitesnake in 1984, the band sounded revitalized and energetic. Slide It In may have relied on Led Zeppelin’s and Deep Purple’s old tricks, but the band had a knack for writing hooks; the record became their first platinum album. Three years later, Whitesnake released an eponymous album (titled 1987 in Europe) that was even better. Portions of the album were blatantly derivative — “Still of the Night” was a dead ringer for early Zeppelin — but the group could write powerful, heavy rockers like “Here I Go Again” that were driven as much by melody as riffs, as well as hit power ballads like “Is This Love.” Whitesnake was an enormous international success, selling over six million copies in the US alone. Before they recorded their follow-up, 1989’s Slip of the Tongue, Coverdale again assembled a completely new version of the band, featuring guitar virtuoso Steve Vai. Although the record went

Whitesnake – Here I Go Again lyrics

|

I don’t know where I’m goin but I sure know where I’ve been hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday. An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time but here I go again, here I go again. Tho’ I keep searching for an answer I never seem to find what I’m looking for. Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on ‘cos I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams. Here I go again on my own goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known. Like a drifter I was born to walk alone. An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time. Just another heart in need of rescue waiting on love’s sweet charity an’ I’m gonna hold on for the rest of my days ‘cos I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams. Here I go again on my own goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known. Like a hobo I was born to walk alone. An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time but here I go again, here I go again, here I go again, here I go. An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time. Here I go again on my own goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known. Like a drifter I was born to walk alone ‘cos I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams. Here I go again on my own goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known. Like a drifter I was born to walk alone. An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time but here I go again, here I go again, here I go again, here I go, here I go again
